Poetry is a fascinating use of language. With almost a million words at its command it is not surprising that these Isles have produced some of the most beautiful, moving and descriptive verse through the centuries. In this volume we explore travel through the eyes and minds of our most gifted poets to bring you a unique poetic guide. Amidst all our dreams and ambitions from cradle to grave is the wanderlust of travel. To see the world, to experience different cultures and new lands. In the modern day a few hours on a plane will take us to an entirely different environment whereas a hundred years ago or more any form of transport would have been far slower paced but getting there was also part of the adventure, the gradual transition from what is known to what is about to be known. This collection of poems takes us across a wide variety of travels and environments both real and in the mind. They summon up descriptions and feelings that are sometimes totally unexpected. Of course when the authors include William Wordsworth, Robert Louis Stevenson, John Keats, Amy Levy, Walt Whitman, Daniel Sheehan and others perhaps we shouldnt be surprised but allow ourselves to be indulged by their ability. Many of the poems are also available as an audiobook from our sister company Portable Poetry. Many samples are at our youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/PortablePoetry?feature=mhee The full volume can be purchased from iTunes, Amazon and other digital stores. Among our readers are Gideon Wagner, Richard Mitchley and Ghizela Rowe
